39th Design Automation Conference Attracts More Than 9,500 Attendees

BOULDER, Colo. -June 18, 2002-The 39th Design Automation Conference (DAC) today announced that more than 9,500 designers, engineers, managers, industry analysts, scholars and exhibitors from leading global companies and universities attended the technical conference held in New Orleans last week. Of this number, more than 4,300 attended the technical program, workshops, tutorials and exhibits. DAC, the electronic design automation (EDA) industry's leading event, offered an expansive and diverse technical program focused on tools, methodologies and processes for system and integrated circuit (IC) design.

"DAC is pleased to announce another successful conference, both in terms of the technical program quality, as well as in conference attendance," said Bryan Ackland, 39th DAC general chair and vice president of communications systems technology for Agere Systems. "Although the current economy played a role in attendance numbers this year, initial feedback from exhibiting companies and from conference attendees has been very positive regarding the quality of the show. In essence, it reaffirms that DAC is the must-attend annual event for the EDA industry."

Beginning June 18, many of the DAC program audio and visual presentations, including keynotes by Hajime Sasaki, chairman of the board of NEC Corp. and Jerry Fiddler, chairman and co-founder of Wind River Systems will be available at www.dac.com. This offering will give design engineers access to DAC information, online, year round. Next year's DAC will be held June 2-6, 2003 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, Calif.
